Gridley (CA) and Bay Area Transit System Switch to Solar

April 2013 - The City of Gridley and the Bay Area Transit System (BART) are now receiving power from a recently completed solar array. The solar panels in the 4.2-megawatt (MW) array are mounted on solar trackers that follow the daily movement of the sun to maximize the system's output. The electricity will be directed to the two customers through separate energy meters monitored by the California Independent System Operator. The array was developed by LightBeam Energy and marked over 400 MW of solar projects engineered by Blue Oak Energy. Both Gridley and BART are members of the Northern California Power Agency, a non-profit agency providing communities with an affordable, reliable, and clean future energy supply.
